5. What are you working on now, and what can we expect from you in the rest of 2012?
Working on a new solo record; some new things coming out in 2012 on different labels; a duo with Paul Lytton; a trio with Agusti Fernandez and Joe Morris; Seven Storey Mountain III; just trying to keep it together.
